Feel free to send me an email at abornkessel@fly4change.com if there is an event happening that I should consider adding.  I look for events that discuss social innovation, social marketing, mobile and social technologies, public health, advocacy, social change, non-profits, journalism, social entrepreneurship, leadership, special observances,  and more.
